    No. Actually what I said is logical based on a rational code of morality. There is no point in reasoning with mystical savages though. I just felt the need to comment when I saw these comments.

    The righteous indignation is amusing. What she did is immoral and it should be pointed out. But then you use the example of men looking at porn. Often men look at porn because their significant other becomes less attractive. A woman (or man) who marries and lets their appearance go is every bit as shameful as a porn star. An obese person is every bit as immoral. A person who doesn’t put full effort into their jobs is more immoral . A person who takes on too much debt is immoral. You had better be condemning everyone not living up to high rational standards otherwise you are a moral cretin.

    Change your name. John Galt would hate you.

    Just reading the comments makes me realize how evil and morally depraved Christians are.

    It absolutely was immoral for Bree Olson to film porn. Sex should be between two equals expressing their highest values. You can’t do that having sex with random strangers. But a porn actress is no more immoral than an overweight person or a person who doesn’t put full effort in their job. If you aren’t going to condemn people for not living to their fullest potential in other areas of life then you have no business selectively shaming a porn star.

    Meh. Cruz is a neoconservative. He should own it. Comparing having breakfast with Al Sharpton (which was a mistake) to talk about criminal justice reform with being surrounded by neocon advisers and establishment shills like Rick Tyler is a stretch. I don’t know too many liberty voters who support campaign finance laws that limit speech and endorsements. Not to mention those guys were acquitted. So..
    Cruz has abandoned liberty voters with his CISA vote yesterday as well as saying we need to hold off on criminal justice reform because of some “crime wave.” He voted for that Freedom Act. It doesn’t help that he is sucking up to Trump and consistently voting to increase spending. That Planned Parenthood “sellout” this author accuses Rand of blew up the debt ceiling. Cruz also voted to undo the sequester. Cruz is okay but he is basically a slightly better warvangelical.

    The Tea Party stand for cronyism and socialism? Donald Trump would be the farthest left candidate the Republican Party ever nominated. His views are more liberal than Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. The guy is a socialist. Have you listened to him? There aren’t one or two issues he is terrible on. There are about 20 issues, some of them major.

    Donald Trump is a socialist. Period. He is a radical lefty on economic issues. There is a reason his wealth tax and progressive taxation is resonating with Paul Krugman and Elizabeth Warren, who both are praising him.. He is to the left of Hillary. End of story.

    This isn’t a flip flop. He isn’t talking about using a missile. He is talking about using a small drone like using a robot to dismantle a bomb. He used the example during the filibuster.

    And an amnesty shill like Ted Cruz.

    You seem proud that you supported the Iraq War. Obviously the war went catastrophically wrong and was a mistake.. I don’t see how any right thinking person can say anything nice about Bush. He was the worst Republican President in the history of the party. He was horrible down the line on domestic issues and foreign policy. Obama is awful but i can’t logically say Bush was better.

    You have a voluntarist flag and your screen name and Ted Cruz is the person you name? Ted Cruz is only different in tone. Policywise he is marginally better than George W. Bush on domestic issues and nearly identical on foreign policy. Cruz has done numerous things over the last few months that curiously don’t get covered that completely eliminate him from me considering him.

    Rubio attacked Rand. Rand responded. Sorry when someone punches you in the mouth unprovoked, you should expect a baseball bat to the face. And this is settled. The embargo is bad policy. It is embarrassing that otherwise reasonable people like Cruz support such an anti-capitalist policy.

    This debate is why Rand Paul needs to be President. Republicans are being cowards on this issue. There is a correct answer to this. Opening up trade and travel is a positive from both an economic perspective and a foreign policy perspective. Period. End of story. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong. You don’t fight Communism with Communist trade policies.

    Actually Jamespublius you clearly don’t know what innocent until proven guilty means. You misunderstand in the way people misunderstand free speech. Those are legal protections. Those protections don’t preclude me from placing judgments and probabilities of guilt on someone based on what is already known.

    OJ Simpson and Casey Anthony had their day in court. Just because they weren’t convicted doesn’t make them innocent. It is overwhelmingly likely that both are guilty and should be treated as such.

    Except none of these women are asking for money. One went to a prosecutor in 2004 and the prosecutor basically said he believed her but rape is a hard conviction. Janice Dickinson has alluded to being raped in interviews about Cosby in 2006. Cosby settled with another woman to drop charges. Cosby has not really given a denial of any of these accusations.

    At the very least, what do you say about a guy who “mentors” teenage women in his hotel room?

    Progressive utopia?
    Nobody is saying he should go to jail without a trial. Given the accusations from 16 women with similar stories, his lawsuit settlement, and his responses now and in the past, it is overwhelmingly likely that he is guilty. That might not be enough to convict in our justice system, which protects the rights of the accused. It is more that enough for him to be shunned, spit on, and treated like the deviant that he is.

    I’m guessing you are being sarcastic. But just in case. Mises was the most the hardcore defender of capitalism of any major academic economist in the 20th century. There was a famous story about him walking out of room with people like Milton Friedman calling them a bunch of socialists for supporting progressive tax rates. The book Socialism was the first major work to point out why pure socialism can’t possibly work under any circumstance because you don’t have a price system coordinating production.

    And big government types like yourself cause 90% of the country’s ills.

    Sanford is one of the top 5 most fiscally conservative people in Congress. He wasn’t a lesser of evils pick or just a good pick. He is outstanding.

    He was a great Governor and a great House Rep. He should have won this race by 20, but airheads, like the author of this column, perpetuate the idea that there is some mythical figure that was better out there.

    In reply to the contribution Mark Sanford Wins, GOP Loses
